My voice has been stifled
By something as trifling as you
Your blundering amazes sometimes
The blind being led by the blind
I voice my opinion: a letter to you
Every word is disgarded like usual
I speak louder make my opinion known
Its no wonder descension is growing
You turned away ignoring the pleas
Stomping on the fabric of me
Your vial nature shows
You do as you please
I lift my voice higher screaming now
You only looked the other way
Now there is nothing left to do
There is no option left
I'll speak the only language you know
The language of greed and violence
Taking back what has been stolen
While my attention was diverted
Wars and corruption stripping me bare
Pushing recklessly forward without a care
You've diluted my vision and dreams
An awakening of mind it seems
Is destroying your plans at the seams
I am the thing you swore to protect
Left with such little respect
The nation that you destroyed
The screams of the voiceless
